EWF is part of DIGIWELD project


The aim of this new project is to create an open and innovative digital learning system and education materials.

 Embracing the learning challenges of the new digital era is the main goal of the DIGIWELD project, which aims at providing digital tools for education and innovative practices for students from Vocational Education and Training Schools, as well as for welders who want to keep abreast of the new skills and competences required for new welding technologies.

The project’s key deliverables throughout its two-year duration include the development of:

•    Curricula fortraining welders using simulators and updating EU Guidelines for the European/International Welder IAB – 089r5 – 14 

•    Digital tool to be inserted in simulators as modules dedicated to the training of apprentices (16-20 years old)

•    Training 24 trainers and involving min 60 apprentices in the welding profession

Once fully developed, it is expected that the new project will provide a unique insight to propose the transfer of innovation to the other 27 countries of the EWF network. As a result, it is expected that at least five new training courses will be provided to the market.

The DIGIWELD project consortium represents a strategic partnership between international education and training entities with the primary goal to offer an adequate platform for acquiring and developing basicskills and key competences for apprentices, as well as for teachers/trainers in the field of welding and digital learning based on simulators.

The consortium partners include ASR – Asociatia de Sudura din Romania; EWF – European Federation for Welding, Joining and Cutting; CESOL – Asociacion Espanola de Soldadura y Tecnologias de Union; IIS Progresss.r.l – Istituto Italiano della Saldatura.; Colegiul Tehnic “Domnul Tudor”; andATS – Augmented Training Services, S.L.
